Celebration of new Green Guide

This is an opportunity to celebrate the collaborative research that went into writing this guide and to meet and talk with the five TRU authors.

What is the Green Guide?

Part of a series of handbooks published by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, each Green Guide focusses on a different area of current practice related to enhancing teaching and learning effectiveness.

The 15th Green Guide is titled Place-Based Education: An Inter and Multidisciplinary Approach and was written by members of the TRU Pedagogy of Place Group.

The authors

The authors are Lyn Baldwin, Nancy Flood, Kim Naqvi, Ginny Ratsoy and Elizabeth Templeman.

In the guide they provide a suite of tools that serve as scaffold for Canadian post-secondary educators to build and reflect on their own place-based teaching and learning practices.

The guide’s purpose

The purpose of the guide is to explore issues of what it means to be in a place, how to build courses and assessments that integrate place-based learning across courses, and illustrate the opportunities that can arise when taking an interdisciplinary approach.
